by Franco Cerchiari – Sr. Columnist — With the history that Anette Olzon has with Nightwish, the similarities to this release and that band will of course be made. But, listen to this release on its own merit. This is a band that was put together to feature the angelic, gorgeous voice [...]
by Franco Cerchiari – Sr. Columnist — Moodier, darker, and in parts even heavier than past studio albums is Ten’s latest, their 13th, Gothica, released on the Frontiers Records label. A listen shows a mesh of Hard Rock, the Melodic, and AOR, while the smooth, rich almost operatic [...]
